Overview Edit

The Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (FSSCC), established in 2002, is the sector coordinator for Financial Services for the protection of critical infrastructure, focused on operational risks. Because the FSSCC fits into a larger network of industry/sector coordinating councils, it is uniquely positioned as the leader within financial services for developing strategies to improve shared critical infrastructure and homeland security.

The FSSCC's mission is further supported by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD-7), which directs government agencies to identify and protect critical infrastructure. The FSSCC works closely with the Department of the Treasury as its designated Sector Specific Agency (SSA), establishing a strong public-private partnership to maintain a robust sector that is resilient against man-made or natural incidents.
